We are told that the Christian god is love itself. I don’t’ know the basis for saying so. In the Bible we find a killer god, perhaps crueler than Hitler. In the NT, god says that humans are born in sin. What is their sin? The first parents are responsible for what they did. Not their descendants. How can a loving god force extraneously a mortal sin on every child? Had he not punished them severely? Had he not thrown them out of the paradise, brought all the suffering and sent their souls to suffer in fire? The Existence of a hell to roast humans forever is a proof that the perpetrator is a diabolic monster.
Throughout the books of Moses we find Yahweh is be feared and appeased. In the Exodus we read how he punishes pharaoh to let the Israelite go with Moses. He turned all canals and rivers of Egypt into blood. What did the poor creatures that lived there do to die an ignominious death? He then plagued the whole land with frogs, gnats, swarms of flies and locusts. Horrible boils and blisters destroyed everything. His angels beheaded thousands of innocent first born children. Pharaoh was afraid and was willing to let the Israelite go with Moses. But in or order to punish him more, God hardened his heart at night. He sent further punishments to the land of Egypt and its people. At last God let Pharaoh release the Israelite. He parted the red-sea waters for his people to pass to the Promised Land. Seeing the pursuit of the Egyptian Army, god closed the waters on them drowning all men and the beasts. (See 7-14 of Exodus). What did the poor beasts do to get massacred?
Even to the Israelite Yahweh was a terror. His punishment was severe to those who disobeyed his commandments. (Deuteronomy-30) “You do anything and you will be utterly destroyed.” “The Lord will smite you with fever, inflammation, drought, boils, fiery heat, madness and blasting until you perish. Your dead bodies will be food to all the birds and beasts.” (Deuteronomy 28:16-25) He frequently sent famines, plagues, hailstorms, and fire to his own people and others (Genesis 26:1, 41; 54:43; Exodus 32:35). When the Israelite made a molten calf he raves: “Now let me alone so that my wrath may not burn against them and consume them in a moment.” (Exodus 32:10)
When Aron and Miriam turned against Moses, Yahweh made them leprous: (Numbers 12:9) When the Israelite began to prostitute with the daughters of Moab, Yahweh commands: take their chiefs and hang them before the Lord (Numbers 24:4).
"I will ... trample them in my fury; and their blood will stain my clothes.” (Isaiah 63:2-6). When Yahweh gets mad -- watch out! He'll starve you to death, burn you with fire, and send vicious beasts to devour you. He'll destroy the young man and the virgin, the suckling and the man of gray hairs. and children. (Deuteronomy. 32:21-26) Yahweh would send false prophets capable of doing miracles to test the Israelite. People would naturally start respecting them. And Yahweh would become wrath-incarnated. “If a prophet gives a sign of wonder …you shall not listen to his words. … For your Lord is testing you. You shall be after your god and fear Him.” (Deuteronomy 13:1-5). How could they know that those who performed miracles were false prophets?
Yahweh wanted animal sacrifices
He demanded animal and human sacrifices from the Israelite to appease him, to get sins forgiven, or to gain favors. Lambs, goats or bulls had to be killed, their blood sprinkled on the altar of the Lord and the flesh with all fat burned as the smell was most pleasing to Yahweh. Leviticus gives details as to how animals are to be killed, their blood sprinkled and flesh burnt. Human sacrifices are not detailed in the OT but it was not repugnant to Yahweh, God asks Abraham to sacrifice his son for Him. (Genesis: 22:10) Just before Abraham was to slit the throat of Isaac, it was stopped, and a lamb was shown to take his place. Human sacrifice was not averse to Yahweh.
The story of Job is an evidence for the atrocities of Yahweh and his complete disregard for human life. The Bible god and Satan placed a bet on whether Job would stop worshiping Him if things started turning wrong for Job. So god killed Job's children, destroyed his house and took everything away from him. As Job did not turn away, he gave him 10 other, more beautiful children. Think of a god killing children and then creating more beautiful kids in a game with Satan!
Yahweh is an ethnic Maniac
To settle His people He did the most vicious campaign ever known in history. One by one He annihilated the hostile kingdoms of Israel. “Take all the fighting men to Ai as you did to Jericho … lay an ambush behind the city when you have taken the city fire it as the Lord has bidden.” (Joshua 8:1, 2 &8:8) “Israel snorted until there was none. As the Lord had commanded they hanged the king.” (Joshua 8:26) “When all the kingdoms came to attack Joshua, Lord threw heavy stones from heaven upon them and they all died.” (Joshua 10:11). God ordered Moses and Aaron-and the other members of their tribe to kill "every man and his neighbor. And there fell of the people that day about 3000 men." (Exodus 32:27-28) But God wasn't satisfied with the slaughter of the 3000, so he killed some more people with a plague. (Exodus 32:35)
“Makeddah, Jericho and Libna were already annihilated. The same was later done to Lachish, Horan, Eglon, Hebron, Debir, Nageb”(Joshua 10:31-40) “When a host of enemy kings came to confront the divine army, the Lord god said: do not be afraid of them, tomorrow at this time I will slain all of them for Israel.” (Joshua 11:6) The details of such ethnic cleansing are in the books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Amos, Zephaniah, Exodus and Deuteronomy. “You shall not leave alive anything that breathes. But you shall utterly destroy them: the Hittite and the Amorite, the Canaanite and the Perizzite, the Hivite and the Jebusite as the Lord your god has commanded you.., so that they may not teach you to do according to all their detestable things which they have done for their gods, so that you would sin against the Lord your God.”(Deuteronomy 20:16–18). “Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘…go and strike Amalek and utterly destroy all that he has, and do not spare him; but put to death man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.” (I Samuel 15:2-3)
Yahweh was happy killing children and infants. He killed every infant, toddler and children in the deluge he sent to destroy everything. When he annihilated Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and brimstone, he just didn’t bother about infants, toddlers or kids. He had a special love for killing the firstborn in his monstrous campaigns against the Egyptians. He sends his angel to behead their firstborn. His passion to kill the first born remained alive for ever. The Israelite celebrated the Passover and sprinkled blood on their doorposts so that Yahweh wouldn't kill their firstborn children (Hebrews 11:28) like he did those of the Egyptians as recorded in the Exodus. Some scholars think the Jews sacrificed their first born during the Passover.
God destroys everything
When the sons of god saw that the daughters of men were fair, they took to wife such of them as they fancied and the Lord was angry and he punished man and fixed his life-span as 120, Later,
God destroyed the entire human race in a huge flood. God killed everyone in a single stroke. Steve Wells has done a precise count of the number of people killed by Yahweh in the Bible. It amounts to 2,821,364; but according to estimates it may be 24,994,828. The total number of people killed by Hitler or by Napoleon is far less then these. Yahweh is a killer god..
